Arthropods – insects, spiders, and their relatives – are all around us. Many spend their entire lives in the wilds of nature, rarely seen by humans. Others, however, accidentally or intentionally inhabit our homes, taking up residence in our basements, kitchens, bathrooms, and even bedrooms. Their lives are rarely observed, but play out daily in the shadows, corners, and crevices of our homes. Interested in learning more about your home’s arthropods?
